Enablence Technologies Supports Fiber-Based Broadband Network For Grupo Cable Sula Of Honduras

By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor

Enablence Technologies Inc. has announced it is supporting a new fiber-based broadband network for Grupo Cable Sula of Honduras to maintain its number one position in the Central American region.

Enablence Technologies designs, manufactures and sells optical components, subsystems and systems to a global customer base.

Grupo Cable Sula is the second-largest cable operator in Honduras. It provides services to cable subscribers and Internet and telephone users in the city of San Pedro Sula.

Grupo Cable Sula expanded its services into the telecommunications market in 2000 to deliver Internet, data, telephone and analog and digital CATV and has been using Enablence's TRIDENT7 Compact OLT “COLT (News - Alert)” for some time now.

According to Jorge Canahuati Hoch, CEO of Grupo Cable Sula, the business customers of Grupo Cable Sula needed high-bandwidth Internet and data services at a reasonable cost which only Enablence's proven FTTx platform could provide. Hoch added that the TRIDENT7 has allowed the company to overtake its competitors with a fiber network that is far more secure, reliable and faster than cable modem, DSL or wireless.

Grupo Cable Sula turned to Enablence again for expanding its offering to business customers with next-generation broadband services.

The company is rolling out new value added service packages to small- and medium-sized businesses at an aggressive price under the name of FiberLink Pymes.

Such packages will include Internet at speeds of up to 10 mbps, two dedicated phone lines, optional analog or digital TV service and a corporate data link at speeds of up to 100 mbps. Grupo Cable Sula purchased Enablence's flagship TRIDENT7 Universal Access Platform, Optical Line Terminal, Optical Networking Terminals and the Element Management Suite to support this deployment.
